White House brush off aliens theories

White HouseOver North American airspace, flying objects that appeared to belong in a movie have been sighted.

President Joe Biden gave the military three days (including the weekend) to shoot down three flying objects.

During a news briefing on Monday, the White House made it clear that they were still unaware of what the objects were.

The folks there were unable to confirm if the objects were surveillance drones.

It was unclear what the flying objects were since the fighter aircraft that was seeing them were moving so quickly.

As a consequence, many people have shared their opinions, and the majority of them have stated that alien involvement is present.

The briefing

In a briefing at noon on Monday, the White House made it clear that, while not understanding what they were, the flying objects did not originate from space.

“I just wanted to make sure we address this from the White House,” started Karine Jean-Pierre, the press secretary.

“I know there have been questions and concerns about this, but there is no – again, no – indication of aliens or extraterrestrial activity with these recent take-downs.”

“Wanted to make sure that the American people knew that, all of you knew that,” she added.

“And it was important for us to say that from here because we’ve been hearing a lot about it.”

The White House press corps chuckled a little at the statements regarding extraterrestrial activities.

Mysterious objects

A Chinese spy balloon was shot down by the US Air Force earlier in the month.

Three unidentified objects, however, have recently been spotted over Alaska, the Canadian Yukon Territory, and Lake Huron near Michigan.

Four in total were destroyed in February.

Timeline of the object sightings

On February 4, 2023, an F-22 fighter jet downed the first flying object.

Off the coast of South Carolina, it was initially spotted.

Another object was fired over Alaska on February 10.

It was around the size of a small automobile, per the White House.

On the other hand, the Pentagon denied claims that the item was a balloon and said that it had disintegrated into smaller parts.

The next day, another flying object was fired above the Yukon Territory, according to Justin Trudeau, the president of Canada.

The most recent flying object was seen above Lake Huron in Michigan on Sunday after passing over Montana the day before.

Officials overwhelmed

Numerous questions regarding the aircrafts and Biden’s request for the military to shoot them down have been directed to the White House.

Authorities took the mystery surrounding the strange flying objects very seriously.

Conspiracy theories have been very prevalent in conversation as a result of how current events have developed.

One officer acknowledged that the lack of knowledge increased the likelihood that novel theories would emerge, saying:

“Everyone wants answers that no one has at the moment.”

Sources claim that officials decided it would be prudent to explicitly (and immediately) rule out the possibility of alien participation even if there isn’t enough qualitative data about the objects to disclose to the public.

Officials had to make a decision immediately since they knew it would take some time to gather and inspect the fallen debris.

Sharing information

Representatives of the administration claim that their objective is to disseminate all of their knowledge on the flying objects.

They did acknowledge that the current situation isn’t the best for a discussion, however.

President Joe Biden said he wants to be open and honest about the situation with Congress and the American people.

Biden acknowledged that his capacity to address the matter is constrained without a thorough understanding of the nature of the flying objects, according to sources.

The government is working to clarify the false information that surfaced over the weekend in the meantime.

In an effort to bring authorities together in light of the contradicting assertions made by the Pentagon and Congressmen, they chose to have John Kirby brief the White House on the situation on Monday.

The National Security Council’s coordinator for strategic communications, John Kirby, is the ideal candidate to carry out this effort.

Given the rise in conspiracy theories, a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee suggested on Monday that it could be a good idea for the US President to address the nation.

“Ambiguity is fuel for conspiracy theorists,” said the lawmaker. “I hope information is shared expeditiously.”
